Brunswick Stew bubbling away on the stove just smells like Fall. With snow flurries this week and freezing temps, it was the perfect way to warm up. My family loves Brunswick Stew. It’s pretty much the only soup/stew that we all can agree on.
We’ve had store-bought and boy-scout made, all in search of that perfect version at an affordable cost. Just smelling this recipe while it cooked, and then tasting the flavors after they’d melded… there was no denying that this is now the only version for us. Not to mention, that while it was definitely cheaper than anything we’ve purchased so far and the most delicious, it also made enough for a hearty dinner with enough leftovers to freeze for two more meals.
That’s what I call efficient! My dutch over was, literally, brimming with awesome-sauce. Is that even a word? If not, it should be, specifically for this recipe.
Warn off the Winter weather and warm your own family up tonight with this hearty recipe, or serve this classic at your next gathering where it’s sure to be a hit!
